Some of you may be familiar with The "black sheep" city of your State thread. The counterpart to this, is this thread,"Your State's Coolest/Hippest Towns & Cities." The thread is asking if the state you currently live in, formely lived in or if you lived in more than two states within the past 5-10 years, which town(s) and/or cities would you deem as "cool" or "hip", as well as other locals, leisure travelers to your town or city, business visitors, and even the media.

For example, one such North Carolinan city that recieves alot of attention is Asheville. Many visitors across a broad sprectrum and even locals love this mountain town, and consider it "hip."

San Diego for sure. Most everyone loves it when they come to visit. The weather, the beaches, the scenery, the attractions, the food and the people.

San Diego is mostly for surfers and retirees.
When I think of cool and hip, I think of Berkeley, or San Francisco.

Cool and hip in Florida? LOL.....I suppose Miami Beach (South Beach) would be the closest.

Besides NYC, I'd say that Ithaca, New Paltz, Saratoga Springs and certain parts of Upstate NY cities(Allentown and Elmwood Village in Buffalo, Park Ave and SouthWedge in Rochester, Armory Square(Downtown) and maybe Westcott in Syracuse, Center Square/Lark Street in Albany, Downtown Troy, Washington Street in Binghamton, etc).

Retirees go to Palm Springs, not San Diego. Families settle in San Diego. Perhaps Venice or Santa Monica would've been better for 'hip'.

By stereotype, Austin. In reality, I don't think there is really any difference coolness and hipness between Austin, DFW, and Houston (listed alphabetically, not in order).
